By Guido’s count Theresa May now has 23 SpAds, spinners and policy wonks at Number 10, still a little way off Dave’s chumocracy. The PM has hired former Foreign Office SpAd Denzil Davidson, Centrica’s Georgia Berry and Alex Burghart from the Centre for Social Justice. War hero Chris Brannigan joins as a business adviser. David Davis, Liam Fox, Alun Cairns, David Lidington, Karen Bradley and Ben Gummer are still hiring. Patrick McLoughlin’s CCHQ chief of staff is also up for grabs.
